Trelleborg Tyres Partners with ABP Food Group to Enhance Agricultural Fuel Efficiency

Trelleborg Tyres has partnered with ABP Food Group, one of Europe’s leading food processors, to improve fuel efficiency in agriculture by focusing on the crucial role of tyres. This collaboration aligns with ABP’s PRISM 2030 programme, dedicated to enhancing the sustainability of meat production. PRISM 2030 aims to help farmers reduce farm carbon emissions, improve production efficiency, and foster better biodiversity, soil, water, and animal health and welfare.

Bruce Lauder, Agriculture Sales Director at Trelleborg Tyres, has been at the forefront of this initiative, working closely with PRISM farmers. Lauder has been providing education on the significant impact that tyre selection and maintenance have on fuel efficiency. During a recent webinar, Lauder shared valuable insights into how the right tyres can transform agricultural machinery’s performance, leading to increased efficiency and substantial savings for farmers.

“Agri tyres are not just an accessory; they are a crucial component in farming operations,” Lauder explained. “The selection of the right tyre is as important as the machinery itself, making a substantial difference in overall performance and efficiency. Trelleborg Tyres’ ProgressiveTraction® technology is a testament to this, offering enhanced traction and flotation, reducing slippage, and thus fuel consumption.”

Lauder emphasised that choosing the right agricultural tyre involves more than just enabling machinery to move across fields; it’s about maximising efficiency and fuel savings. The correct tyre pressure and tread design can optimise traction, minimise soil compaction, and ensure smooth farming operations.

“Trelleborg Tyres is dedicated to driving sustainability in agriculture,” stated Lauder. “Our partnership with ABP Food Group is a step forward in empowering farmers with the right choices for their tyre needs, leading to a greener future in agriculture, where sustainability and performance lead to greater efficiency and savings for farmers.”
